Honey Beer Bread

What’s better than fresh baked bread? Not much, unless of course you add a dash of honey and bottle of beer to the mix.  Got 30 minutes?  Well, then you’ve got fresh, warm, and delicious bread.   This easy and tasty loaf takes less than five minutes to prepare and combines some of the finest/easiest ingredients…flour, honey, and beer.  Thought you couldn’t bake…just crack open a beer. Cheers!

3 cups flour
2 Tbsp. sugar
1 Tbsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
2 Tbsp. honey, slightly warmed
1 bottle (12 ounces) beer (try different flavors!)
3 Tbsp. butter, melted

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a loaf pan with cooking spray.
2.  In a bowl, whisk flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.  With a spoon, stir in beer and honey and stir until just combined.

3.  Pour half the melted butter into the bottom of the loaf pan and swirl to coat.  Pour in batter and top with remaining melted butter.  I like to add a sprinkle of sea salt and a crack of fresh black pepper to the top too.
4.  Bake at 350 for 40-50 minutes or until golden brown.
Yum!  Serve with whipped honey butter, jam, or simply as a delicious side.
